I am still in shock and hurt by all of this. You were only here for a short period of time, but your impact on those around you was tremendous. I have never met anyone as talented and respected as you. The last few conversation that you had with me and Steve I will hold I'm my heart for ever. We talked about you getting rest but never did I imagined the ultimate rest. Now that God has called you home I believe that you will be at peace. Those deep conversations continue to play in my mind, and I want you to know that you were truly loved and will be missed! You were one of the realistic and faithful friend/cousin ever. This is really hard to swallow..... Rest my bro! # Your "Double Cousin"

When a loved one dies it can grieve our hearts, and make us very sad. But the Bible gives us comfort to know that Jehovah God will keep the promise he made of no pain, no death and no sorrow. (Revelation 21:3,4) May these few words comfort you during this difficult time.
